Commerce, Management and Economics - Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship can be defined as the process of launching a new business or creating a new enterprise while bearing any or all of its risks with a view to making profits. People who found such businesses are called entrepreneurs and are active part of the organization which they create. There are many types of start-up models for budding entrepreneurs such as small business, social entrepreneurship, scalable start-up and large company. A small business refers to opening a company, retail store or a restaurant in which the owner does not intend to expand the business or turn into a conglomerate. Scalable start-ups often start small. These businesses begin on a very small scale and aim to become billion dollar companies.
